Celebrity Cruise Ship Goes in to Dry Dock for Further 'Solsticizing'
(8:00 a.m. EDT) -- Celebrity Constellation has gone into drydock for further “Solsticizing” -- the term coined by the line for adding the favorite features of its Solstice Class ships to its Millennium Class ships. The 91,000-ton, 2,034-passenger ship will see a whole raft of new additions, including 66 brand new cabins, and the introduction of 107 AquaClass cabins onto the ship. Other new features include:

new verandas for suites

An upgraded basketball court

Craft beer in Michael's Club

the introduction of the iLounge, with Apple workstations, informative classes on the latest products and technologies, and a retail store and a new meetings and conference space.

The ship will also have Wi-fi throughout, new color schemes, new carpeting and new upholstery reflective of the Solstice Class; and new sun loungers on the pool decks.

Constellation first went into drydock for some initial Solstice Class additions -- the Tuscan Grille, new staterooms, renovated bathrooms, new bedding, new flat-screen TVs, entirely refreshed public spaces, and new color schemes throughout the ship -- in 2010. Celebrity Cruises then continued with the $140 million project with sister ships Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Summit. The AquaClass Cabins will comprise 37 brand new cabins and 70 converted from Concierge Class. Passengers will have exclusive access to the specialty Blu restaurant and complimentary access to the Persian Garden and Relaxation Room in the ship's AquaSpa.

The 66 new cabins will include 17 oceanview, 12 inside, and the 37 AquaClass cabins.

Constellation re-enters service May 5, 2013, setting sail from Miami on a 15-night Transatlantic voyage to Amsterdam, where the ship will offer Baltic sailings during the season.
